Information Systems Science at Aalto University School of Business has a strong focus on empirical studies and active cooperation with companies. Besides theoretical contributions, ISS studies often emphasize practical relevance. Our research deals with adoption, use and impacts of ICT on consumers, companies, and society at large.
